354. Deputy Jim Daly asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the grants available to voluntary organisations for acquiring new equipment in her Department; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [7244/16]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Frances Fitzgerald): My Department does not provide grants specifically for the acquisition of new equipment. However, the cost of new equipment can be included as appropriate, and on a case-by-case basis, in grants in the areas of gender equality and migrant integration. Where EU funding is concerned, regard must be had to the relevant rules.
